Food Photos Practice

Baked wild caught halibut with roasted asparagus, steamed broccoli, and kidney bean and corn salad.
I'm trying to get better at taking a nice picture of the food I'm making like you see on all the food blogs. I got some tips from Food for Thought, the first tip being Take your camera off Auto. Yikes! Really? ...Oh yeah! Much better. Tell me what you think.

What's that you say? Never mind the photo. Tell me about the food. Okay, that was dinner last night. It took 25 minutes to prepare. Baked wild caught halibut, marinated for 5 minutes in a teriyaki sauce then breaded with polenta from the box. Trim the asparagus, lay out on baking pan, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning. Add fish to pan and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. I use the toaster oven. It's fast and efficient.

Meanwhile cut broccoli stalk into bite-size pieces and steam on stove top. Careful not to over cook. Turn off heat and remove lid as soon as broccoli turns darker color.

We split the fish, broccoli and asparagus between two plates and added a kidney bean and corn salad.

Now that's a KISS dinner!

What did you have last night?
